Anybody want to share expenses on either Kentucky lake or lake of the Ozarks?

Can't complain though. A couple years ago they had two on the Detroit river in the same year. I changed my mind I am now looking at the FLW series at Clarks Hill in Georgia. It is the week following our Regional in Tenn. that would be a short hop to Georgia. Anybody interested?

I am going to have to really consider the FLW event now...800 dollars and the Restrictions on Pre-fishing is going to have to make me think about it for a week or two

I just wander if having the tour event there had any bearing on their decision. I noticed Fort Madison was on the schedule, I'd have to think about that for a minute...............OK, Nope.

I think Team Houston has the right Idea.....
The smart thing would be to go to Kentucky lake as a Co-Angler...What better way to learn the water and techniques for the regional than spend 3 days in the back of the boat with pros...
Don't send me hate mail....I am not saying to carry a GPS and mark spots...but you could learn what works and doesn't in a short period of time.

That would be cool, to learn a new lake. But our regional is at Cherokee Lake next year.

its funny how oppinions differ I seen that ft madison was on the 2008 stren schedule and immidiatley put it on my wish list, I couldnt think of a funner thing to do than all that flippin and pitchin oh and the top water bite than can last all day and the smallmouth sitting behind the wing dams just waiting to ambush a jig falling over the back of them.....I cant wait what an awesome and diverse fishery;D

I love new water as long as its big I dont like little lakes that are a mere couple thousand acres, I heard from several peaple that the mississippi wasnt that good but for some reason I was still excited about going and learning it and it was awesome I just regret that I only got to see pool 19, I cant wait to go try the other ones ;)

I actually would like to get back there, but not as a non-boater. Flipping and pitching behind a skilled fisherman can be discouraging. If he is someone that absolutely takes all the water without reguard for his no-boater, it's a long day back there.

Your absolutely right dashaver...that is one of the benefits of fishing all of that big water in the BFLs this year for the Co's.  You can usually catch smallies off of either side of the boat....Burt and Mullet could be tough if you draw somebody that sits on bedding fish...

This is exactly why I was so looking forward to the Detroit event.

Any of you ever fish Lake Champlain?  I have family very near to Plattsburg... so it would be a relatively cheap trip for me.  Just wondering if you can get seriously back seated on that body of water?

I was in a Everstart tournament a  few years back on Champlain. The guy I fished with the first day pointed to a rock pile and left me fishing in 25 fow. All I caught was a pike that day. The second day got canceled due to rough water. That was pretty dissapointing after traveling all that way.

it could also be a tough draw if someones(name left out) post spawn fish decide to leave over night ::)

Champlain is an awesome fishery and if you get the chance you should fish it. I have been there twice for stren events. My expierience is if your boater is around fish you will catch some. To me it is a lot like St. Clair and Erie. a lot of times the guy in the back will do better because there is so many fish. Hard to get back seated there.
